THE REFUGEES stare toward the island as A HUGE BOOOOOM FILLS
   THE NIGHT. Some of the YOUNGER CHILDREN start to cheer as
   though watching fireworks on the Fourth of July.

165   EXT. GASPARILLA'S ISLAND (THEIR P.O.V.) - NIGHT

   THE TOP BLOWS OFF THE ISLAND, just as TOBY predicted is would.
   It's as though an enormous underground volcano is exploding.
   It's a frightening...yet beautiful sight.

166   EXT. THE FISHING BOAT - NIGHT

   TOBY looks back over his shoulder. THE NURSE is kneeling beside
   the body of TRICKS. He's dead. The woman pulls a blanket up
   over his head. TOBY steps forward, his PISTOL drawn. He pulls
   the hammer back and aims at TRICKS' head.

            SARAH
      No. Don't. Wait. Wait to see if... wait
      until it's necessary.

   TOBY turns and looks at MARY. She nods. He releases the PISTOL
   HAMMER without firing.

   DISSOLVE TO:

167   EXT. ANOTHER ISLAND (WIDE EST.) - MORNING

   Gorgeous, a paradise. BIRDSONG fills the air.

168   EXT. A RIVER ON THE ISLAND - MORNING

   THE REGUGEES are all gathered. THE CHILDREN walk, one by one,
   through the shallows as JOHN baptises them. SARAH, MARY AND THE
   NURSE carry the infants. When the infant in SARAH'S arms has
   been touched by JOHN'S hand, SARAH doesn't move on. Instead,
   she looks up into the big man's warm eyes.

            SARAH
      Me too...please.

168   CONTINUED:(HOTD)

   JOHN gently cups a handful of river water and pours it on the
   woman's forehead. Validation.

   THE OTHER ADULTS, led by LUKEY, file into the river, all lining
   up before the baptist, waiting their turns to be blessed into
   this tiny new society.

169   EXT. A BEACH ON THE ISLAND - MORNING

   TRICKS' BODY lies covered in the sand. THE REFUGEES are
   gathered again, heads bowed, while JOHN speaks.

            JOHN
      Satan ain't sent this man back. Not
      yet, anyway. So we all hopin' that
      maybe he's uphthere with you, Lord.
      This might be theofirst decent soul we
      been able ta offertya in quite a few
      years. That's adfact. We just gonna...   
      pray, Lord. We gonna pray that what
      seems tahbe happenin' here...is really
      happenin'...andoI'm gonna take the
      chance and speaktthese words that I
      ain't been abledta speak for so long...

      May he rest in peace

            THE OTHERS
      Amen.

170   EXT. THE BEACH - NIGHT

   THE CORPSE lies in the MOONLIGHT. NIGHT CRITTERS SCREECH AND
   BURBLE in the jungle behind the sand. It's an eerie scene.

   SARAH is sitting up, her RIFLE ready in her lap, watching the
   body. JOHN steps in behind and she startles.

            JOHN
      Just me. I'll take the next shift.

   He settles easily down beside the woman. The two stare together
   at the shrouded corpse.

            SARAH
      How long do have to watch him?

            JOHN
      Forever, darlin'. Forever. 'Til he
      turns ta dust and blows away on the
      wind.

   THE BODY lies silent, rigid under the KHAKI ARMY BLANKET that
   rises and falls, rises and falls with the Gulf breeze.

   Suddenly...A LOUD MUSIC CHORD! A SUDDEN MOVEMENT!

   It's the movement of RED LETTERS that spin up off the head of
   the corpse and settle before our eyes.

   The letters read: "THE END (I PROMISE)"
